Artwork Of God

 

the butterfly
flits
from flower to flower,
tree to tree —
artwork of God
dazzling me

much ado is made
— scientifically —
of her limited lifespan —
two days in Spring

but time is a squishy
figmentary thing

1000s of delicate
butterfly
wings
will unfurl
from chrysalis buds
long after I’m gone

with nary a worry
for what or how long

Autumn

 

leaves are falling
ghosts are haunting
melting trees
breathing shivers
across bare limbs

in a thicket
they are singing
mournful ballads
and a bittersweet wind
tickles the strings

of a lonely mandolin
